An established, locally grown business is embracing greater use of modern technology thanks to help from a council-run eBusiness Club.
Dischromatics formed in 1989 and now based in Abercarn, has built its reputation as a supplier of high quality CD and DVD and duplication and printing. Combined with the duplication service, the company also has their own digital printing department which manufactures bespoke packaging and print solutions for their clients. It also has its own graphic design department to help clients design their marketing projects, including direct marketing using Variable Data Printing.
Managing Director, Gareth Spencer, has taken over the business from his father and is determined to continue the programme of investment in new technology and developing new products.
To help Gareth stay abreast of new software developments and learn more about the advances in email marketing, Gareth has attended the eBusiness Club and also the email Marketing Workshop, which are organised by Caerphilly County Borough Council's Economic Development Team.
"The ICT help and advice that I have received from the council has been invaluable. In their IT Demonstration Suite at Tredomen Business & Technology Centre we have been able to try out new software for our Apple Macs before making an expensive commitment to purchasing," said Gareth.
Cllr Ron Davies, Cabinet Member for Regeneration said, "Even long established local businesses such as Dischromatics are benefiting from new technology, as well as the local networking opportunities at the eBusiness Club. Businesses should get in touch with our Economic Development Team to find out more about the independent advice and support that is available to them free of charge."
The eBusiness Club recommences in October and is run on the first Tuesday of each month at Tredomen Business & Technology Centre, Hengoed. For more information e-mail the Council's Economic Development Team or call them on 01443 866222.
